Riley Riley

The Jeep Compass is back looking like a smaller version of the best selling Grand Cherokee.

Available in 4×2 or 4×4 configuration the compact SUV comes with a choice of 2.4-litre 129 kW/229Nm petrol or 2.0-litre 125kW/350Nm diesel engines, priced from $28,850.

Arriving in dealerships from this week, the Jeep Compass will be available in four different trim-levels: Sport, Longitude, Limited and for the first time ever – Trailhawk.

“The all-new Jeep Compass enters Australia at an incredibly pivotal time for the brand and provides us with a great opportunity in a segment that we have been vacant from for some time,” Jeep’s Guillaume Drelon said.

“The compact-SUV segment in Australia accounts for approximately twenty percent of the SUV market which offers an opportunity for improved market share,” he added.

“In terms of refinement and the product’s offerings, Compass raises the bar in the compact- SUV segment with new levels of style, advanced technology, safety features, and most importantly, capability – it’s a versatile vehicle that will relish in Australian conditions and as such we are confident that it will be well received by the market.

“We’re proud to have positioned the Compass competitively, offering a diverse range with something for everyone – be it the urban consumer wanting a stylish SUV without the prestige price tag, or the more adventurous minded buyer who wants to take the road less travelled with confidence.”
